.22 LR ammo

Postby Gramps » Sat Apr 13, 2019 4:08 pm

I bought a Taurus Poly .22 ( good price) yesterday to play with and kinda like it, think the Mrs will when she has time to shoot it. It will make a good back up IMO.
I am looking for info on good 22LR ammo, 40gr minimum, high velocity jacketed non hollow point and reliable as a rimfire can be.
Rag if you want a 22 as a back up but please do it while offering info asked for.

Thanks

Not many choices for jacketed non-hollowpoint. I'd probably look for some Aguila SuperExtra High Velocity 40 Grain Copper Plated Round Nose. I honestly can't remember seeing any other plated 40gr+ .22 ammo in a long time. For some reason most of the plated stuff is 36gr hollow point.

That's are the two that comes to mind for me too. ( CCI mini mag 40 grain or the Aquila) I've tried both in the past and both worked fine for me, but I was using a SA revolver. Your mileage may vary.

For what it's worth, CCI Mini-Mag rounds (.22LR 40 grain copper plated round nose) work fine in my Ruger 10/22.

I put well over a 150rds of odd stuff in partial boxes I had in the ammo safe, some for many years. (one had a Rinks sticker on it) Only one hiccup and it was failure to feed and it was my fault, I didn't lock the barrel down good. Duh
It held a good groups for me at 21ft. I think it could do a LOT better than 4 inch groups with a better shooter. I did pull several low left but it was me not the gun. Something I really need to work on more with all our shorter barreled handguns.
Thanks you guys for your input and suggestions.
I will check our local ammo suppliers for CCI Mini-Mag rounds and Aguila SuperExtra High Velocity 40 Grain Copper Plated Round Nose this week.

Thanks

Bought a 100 rd box, 75 or so I put down range and they work very well in the little pistol.
